Thorens TD145
& HiFi

A suite of vintage and DIY analogue audio equipment 


​Refurbishing this turntable was my entry point into design

After the completion of the project, I recognized that I wouldn't be happy unless some aspect of the process I just experienced were part of my life

Following this, I applied to grad school
